FTC to Investigate Google+ Inspection in Google Investigation

A recent report suggests that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is going to include Google+ in its existing probe of Google.

The launch of Google’s social network is taken by FTC pertinent to its investigation into whether Google is violating antitrust laws by offering its own services favorable treatment, according to Bloomberg that quotes “two people familiar with the situation.”

It was back in June when FTC launched its investigation against Google operations. The commission has probed Google previously as well over its Google Buzz privacy issues. However, FTC believes that its latest investigation into Google is roader one.

The report comes at a critical time for the search giant as it has recently incorporated its Google+ data into its search results. This move of search giant offended many of its rivals including Twitter and watchdog group EPIC that filed a complaint to the FTC inciting the commission to probe into the Google+ integration.

Now, the time will show us how fruitful is that probe against Google+ go for the Federal Trade Commission. If you have your say on this probe, please let us know in the comments section.
